Our wetlands are drying up fast!
One of my projects has been to continue the monitoring work performed for SRWS by Karenn Bailey and Jennifer Buchanan, both B.C.I.T. Ecological Restoration graduates. It has consisted of monitoring wetlands created previously or conserved in the following areas: Pinecrest, Culliton, Brohm and the Sea to Sky Gondola. This summer has proven to be a challenge for these wetlands. While they are all ephemeral, many have dried up many weeks earlier than previously recorded.

Wetland Residents & Neighbours
I have spotted many amphibians in these wetlands including the provincially blue listed Northern Red-legged frog (Rana aurora) in the Brohm wetlands.

This summer I will be exploring and learning more about the place I have called home for many years. While working for the Squamish River Watershed Society, I expect to build on the knowledge I have gained in my past year at BCIT's Ecological Restoration Program. My name is Vanessa Logie Isnardy and you can follow along as I post about my adventures.
